Remember a while back when we teased you with a sneak peek of a project that Kate Quinn was working on? Well, we’re so thrilled that we can finally give you a full reveal!
Kate created these beautiful placemats with her Westalee Design Templates, and they are just as gorgeous on the back as they are on the front.
The base placemats were made with the June Tailor Casablanca Quilt As You Go kit. We love these kits, because you spend less time getting your project together, so you can spend more time using your Westalee Design templates to take them from really cute to really amazing! Kate also used YLI Machine Quilting variegated cotton thread, Hoffman Batik Solid for the backing, blue fabric from Wilmington Prints, red fabric by Henry Glass and Co., and a few fabrics from her stash.
Scroll through the gallery below to see these beauties up close!
Kate is an amazingly talented quilt designer that also does custom long-arm quilting. Check out her Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/FabriKatedQuilts/
